Raw Boys

By Dael Orlandersmith Directed by Blanka Zizka

March 2 – April 10, 2005

From the pen of Dael Orlandersmith, Pulitzer Prize finalist for Yellowman, comes this blistering account of two Irish brothers’ coming-of-age. After a childhood of suffering at the hands of his father, Billy escapes for New York to fulfill his dream of acting. Years later, he sends for his brother, Shane, who soon follows and finds love with a Nuyorican girl. With biting humor and rich, poetic dialogue, Raw Boys explores the irrevocable ties of family.
